It wouldn’t be anything unusual if a footage of two riders shredding through the woods went viral because of their skills. But this video’s got almost a million views on YouTube for another reason. Two friends were having fun in the Malinô Brdo bike park near Rožumberok, Slovakia, when a local bear decided to show them his downhill capabilities. Nevertheless, the biker in the front seemed to be faster, so the bear took a shortcut through the woods. At that moment the rider in the front stopped, saving himself from any potential harm.

Dušan Vinžík captured the whole thing on his GoPro, so you can watch the footage below.
